ELISA Beta-lactams Test Kits are useful for detecting the presence of beta-lactam in food products and samples. They can be used by government and international regulatory agencies as well as quality assurance organizations to ensure that products are free from beta-lactams. The kit is a highly sensitive method of detecting the presence of beta-lactam in food. Its expiry date is one year after production.
The beta-lactams family of antibiotics includes cephalosporins, amoxicillins, and monobactams. These antibiotics work by inhibiting bacterial cell wall synthesis. However, excessive levels of b-lactams in animal feed can lead to the growth of drug-resistant pathogens, which can be harmful to humans. The European Union and the U.S. FDA set maximum residue levels for the consumption of animal feed containing b-lactams.
